Today we bought this old framed photo of Hiawatha a champion clydesdale stallion of the 1900s which was bred in Stranrear and owned by a Jogn Pollock. Paper Mil Langside just south of Glasgow.
When this pic was taken in 1901 Hiawatha was 9 years old, weighed in at just under a ton, 19cts to be exact and was 17.1 hands high.
He looks very good and as per the narrative he won first prize at all the main shows in the Edinburgh/Glasgow area around 1900.
As a friend of ours would say...."just a show."
